Aurora Central Catholic High School

Monday, January 29th, 2007 -Coach Rich Swann and Aurora Central Catholic High School Chargers return only two starters from last year’s team, Senior P/1B Matt McDowell and Junior SS Mark Adams. The Charger’s success will be lead by excellent team speed and defense. How much success the Chargers will have will be determined by the roles of many underclassmen.

Sophomore Nick Czaja will be penciled in as the number one pitcher for the Chargers. Senior Matt McDowell will figure in the rotation as will Sophomore Michael Adams and Junior transfer David Luna. Junior Chad Roscoe played in 6 games on the varsity last season and will be looked at to fill the role of centerfielder. Junior Kyle Edwards will get the nod as the catcher.

Kyle appeared in 4 games on the varsity as a sophomore. Other Juniors looking to make an impact will be Chris Bierger, Nick Deleon and Billy Balderas. Speed and defense will be the strengths for the 2007 Charger squad while pitching is the main concern as Senior Matt McDowell is the only player on the roster with varsity pitching experience.
